Fundamental Skill

Building and expanding the Movement Library


Fundamental Skill 1 and 2 modules provide tools for building and expanding a diverse movement library and for developing comprehensive movement control. Main areas of learning are body control, bounding, jumping, landing, running, change of direction and partner-assisted agility. In addition, the movement skill exercises are integrated with the skills of throwing and catching a ball. Fundamental Skill 1 and 2 modules train the various elements of the movement skills and teach to understand the different components.

In conjunction with the main learning theme, each training session starts with a movement preparation component that is divided into development of body control and mobility. Movement preparation warm-up helps build functional strength and flexibility that ensures that fundamental skills as well as physiological abilities are developing hand in hand. A core strengthening segment takes place in the end of training session. Also, each participant is given a movement homework that is meant to be a motivation for independent learning and training until the group meets again.

Fundamental Skill 1

The first level training is based on understanding each of the movement skills and on learning the correct execution in an inspiring learning and training environment. The movement skill sessions are put together as stations which allows individual learning challenges arranged according to the personal abilities of the learner. The main goal of the Fundamental Skill level 1 is developing and improving general function.

Fundamental Skill 2

The second level aims to strengthen learned movement patterns and techniques. As the movement library grows, the movement skill exercises expand from single movement to combinations of movements. These combined movement skills bring us closer to integrated elements of rhythm and coordination. The main focus is still on the quality of movement and the technique with the addition of new challenges through novel learning environments and external stimuli. On Fundamental Skill level 2 also demands on the physical conditioning grow.

Fundamental Skill – Skill Mastery

Skill Mastery -module consists of content that provide tools and information in order to assess and track progress of movement skills. There are two Skill Mastery levels on the Fundamental Skill -module, Skill Mastery level 1 and 2. Skill Mastery -evaluation movements are designed based on the main themes and the main movement skills. Skill Mastery assessments function as a good base level measurement for both the beginning and the end of the tracking period. Skill Mastery -module includes an assessment software that produces an accurate report of various components of movement skills and the areas for improvement.
